What is a Cooling Tower?

A cooling tower is a special type of heat exchanger in which air and water are brought into direct contact with each other. Through an evaporative process, the water temperature will be lowered while circulating through the tower.

Cooling Tower Systems has manufactured various models of cooling tower systems and related equipment for over 40 years, with five different models in production- one to meet every need for businesses of all sizes. We are the oldest, full service fiberglass water cooling tower manufacturer in business today.


Design Features:
The non-rusting FRP casing and basin, circular in shape, eliminates special installation requirements.  Prevailing wind directions will not affect tower performance.

Easy access through casing simplifies cleaning.  Individual fiberglass panels are stainless steel bolted together for periodic wash down and general clean up.
The CTS FRP cooling tower is designed for durability and long life even under the most severe environmental weather conditions.

Fan Blades:
Aerodynamically designed propeller type fan blades are used to conserve power and assure quiet operations.  CTS models T-25 through T-230 feature a factory-balanced ABS plastic blade.  CTS models T-240 and above feature an all aluminum alloy adjustable fan.




Fan Drive:
CTS models T-25 through T-2200 have direct drive fan motors.  CTS models T-2225 and larger feature a unique belt drive, designed to reduce noise levels, with optional gear drives. 

Water Distribution System:
CTS models T-25 through T-260 use an ABS plastic sprinkler with stainless steel shaft.  CTS models T-270 and above use an aluminum alloy sprinkler head.  Both types of sprinkler head require little or no head pressure loss and minimum maintenance.

Inlet Louvers:
Non-rusting PVC plastic mesh provides easy access to sump while preventing foreign objects from entering water basin.

Provided for maintenance and inspection accessibility to fan and sprinkler systems.  (Models T-240 and above.)

Fill Material:
Honeycomb heat-embossed PVC is formed to permit high heat transfer efficiency.  The CTS fill is suitable for operation with inlet water temperatures of 125° F.  For higher temperatures, contact your representative for quote.
